Raven Lawrence walked away from the cave in which he had spent the last day as fast as he could. He had somehow come out of the encounter with no injuries, no lost equipment, and a clearer picture of what he would have to do in order to survive. On the other hand, it wasn't like he got anything out of the situation either.
Part of him wanted to hang around still. Sooner or later, maybe in the next fifteen minutes or maybe two days from now, something would happen between the Priestly siblings. If he was nearby, he could take advantage of the confusion, grab a weapon for himself, and be able to play the game for real, not just hiding in caves and sending people on snipe hunts. He wanted to get something better than the fork he still carried in his pocket. He wanted to satisfy his curiosity about whether or not the twins would stay together or not. He wanted to make sure that Elizabeth survived.
Unfortunately, reality took precedence. It was raining and Raven had to find shelter. Each time he encountered Lenny, it seemed like the male Priestly was one step closer to pulling the trigger. He needed to get away.
He pulled the map out of his pack and started looking for a good place to go. The quarry, maybe, or the lagoon. He was inclined to head to the quarry because it seemed like it would be easier to hide there, but his last attempt at hiding wasn't necessarily the shining example of how not to get caught up in a mess. The lagoon might have been a better choice... except Raven really
wanted to find some shelter to get out of the rain. Oh well, he would just have to decide en route...
